The Poppy Dress Millie Mackintosh Wore

Rememberence day is almost upon us, otherwise known as Poppy Day! Most of us will just be wearing our poppy, but have you seen the Poppy dress Millie Macintosh wore?

The Made in Chelsea star modeled the dress to support The Royal British Legion. The dress was custom-made by designer Giles Deacon and adorned with 100 silk poppies. The result? Simply stunning.

The dress in question did however spark some controversy. Why? Well some people just felt that she was using Remembrance day and the dress as a social media stunt and that she was benefiting from the loss of others. 

Others argues that by wearing the dress it was promoting awareness to the cause and memory of those brave soldiers. Whatever your opinion is, there is no denying that the dress certainly grabs your attention.

The Royal British Legion is a service charity helping the Armed Forces to live on. To find out more click here.

This year the campaign #MyPoppy campaign is to not only respect the memories of those we lost but to be worn for the future of the living. The message that is being communicated here is that there is a story behind every poppy.
